Abstract

The Big Spring study was designed to provide a controlled assessment of a karst groundwater basin. This allows a more thorough understanding of the groundwater quality, the processes resulting in groundwater degradation, and evaluation of possible control measures or management practices. The Big Spring area was chosen because: 1) prior knowledge of the groundwater system in the Galena aquifer existed; 2) ICC and SCS had specific concerns with water-quality and landuse in the area; and 3) the ICC Fish Hatchery at Big Spring allowed the direct measurement of groundwater discharge from the basin, which is generally impossible in other areas.
